Is There a Pig as a Pet? - Pet and Hobby 4

Lost pig in neighborhood

I saw someone brought a pig to the public park a long time ago, I was not so curious, just feel odd.

In recent days, I saw a pig wanders around neighborhood, my first guessed that a pig might be from nearby “pig farming.”

No, no said my neighbor. It was a pet. A pet pig owned by one of our neighbors. Considered as a lost pig.

There are at least 70 breeds of pigs, domestics or wilds world wide, about 4 well known breeds for pet:
- Yucatan
- African pygmy pigs
- Vietnamese potbellied
- teacup pigs

I do not know which one is good for indoor, but some people said that Vietnamese potbellied and teacup pigs are the best choice for pets with distinguish characters such as:

- gentle and sweet to human
- intelligent, can be trained like many cats and dogs
- companionable, walk with human on a leash.

Pigs life spans is in the range between 12 to 20 years, but pet pigs may reach up to 25 years old.

What do you think about pig as a pet?

  2. This was one large pig! I can't imagine how a pig on a leash would react to a dog on a leash, and visa versa. I'd be worried there would be trouble.

  4. I’ve heard of people keeping PotBellied Pigs as pets but have never seen one in person. We don’t have any pets because we travel quite a lot (or at least we used to ... not this year though).

  6. These pigs are at not suitable for a pet, but they are often bought in an impulsive mood. The buyers think such a pig is very cute and they think it's crazy, but they don't realize that a pig needs earth to root in, space to run and peers to play with. Thats perhaps the reason they gonna with him to the park. But its for sure no pet. They need friends and lots of space.

  9. Growing up, someone in my neighborhood had a pig. It was quite the sensation. Still, if I saw the one in this picture walking down the street, I'd probably burst out laughing.

  10. I know a farmer who has a free range pig farm. I can’t imagine a pig otherwise.

  12. I've heard about pigs as pets but have never seen one. My wife read a book about a family that bought a pig and it supposed to be a teacup pig. It grew to be a regular pig that was huge. They eventually had to find a home for it. Stay safe!

  20. Tanza, We've seen a few pet Vietnamese Pot Bellied Pigs over the last 10 years or so. Not something I'd want. They're too smart and can cause trouble if they're unhappy...and they're very strong. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
